Subject: My first show
Bought an obstructed view ticket at the box office and somehow found myself on the floor about 15 rows back when the lights fell. I had run away from home at age 16 and hitched (by myself) from NY to Philly. Bought a half Z in the lot, strawberry EZ Wider papers & 2 six packs of Schmidts at a local market, and went to a Phillies v Reds game the night before the show. Stayed in the Stadium Hilton across the street. My poor mom.

I was immediately hooked. Jack Straw has remained a favorite tune. Terrapin was great. I bought Terrapin Station on LP shortly thereafter in NYC at Sam Goody on Avenue of the Americas.

I remember being struck by how much they rocked on Good Lovin'. That was a total surprise to me. continued to see the band right up to 1995. Last show was Albany in spring 95.

For a 78 Aud 4.5 for sound. I Downloaded it. Full rich sound. I was at every Spectrum show from 80-95 wish I would have made this one. And as we all know the Dead played there more than any other band. Spring 78 they were riping it up, worth the time and the disc for download.The Good Love alone is worth the download.

If you like Jerry's "moaning" singing - get this show.
He groans and howls through Candyamn - very tasty!

Another decent audience recording (headphones on, volume up). Some very exciting lines from Garcia early in his solo, about 12 runs in all. Perhaps they were feeding off the Philly crowd; when they finish it, Weir thanks them....

Music, a pleasant post-vocals jam, but Garcia can't quite figure out how/when to make the turn, so they stumble into it at 5:45. Garcia is clearly not pleased, and starts playing notes as fast he can, desperately trying to put some distance between himself and that musical pothole.

Around 7:23 he starts trilling the chords, and at 7:50 he really sticks (and stays stuck on) one of his favorite licks (the "1-3" where the first note is struck twice, and the last three pulled off; he often uses it to finish off Big River).

At 8:08 he goes back to blurring the chords and takes this to a near-shriek. What a rescue!
